We are living in a golden age of podcasts. In 2021, a staggering 37 per cent of Australians reported listening to podcasts – up from 25 per cent the year before. They listened to 49 million podcasts. Podcast listeners are deeply engaged in their subject matter, listening to an average of five podcasts each week and spending more than six hours each week tuned in.
As a way to reach an engaged and knowledgeable audience with deep and sustained insights, podcasts can’t be beaten.
But any new podcast is up against stiff competition. There are more than two million podcasts in existence, all vying for audience attention. So how do you find your niche, create the perfect podcast, and build your audience?
This course is designed for those wanting to make a podcast, but with no prior skills in doing so. You’ll learn what you need to get started, how the podcast architecture works and how to get your podcast into it, what equipment you will need, how to record and produce your podcast, and how to start to build and grow your audience.
